Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you have already set the hard disk drive with only 1 partition, it is not advisable to directly create another partition for that drive because it might affect the entire partition which could lead to total lost of your important files and data.

    It really depends on the operating system you are using. Linux/Unix has different tools. Partition Magic is probably only used if you have XP. Vista has tools already there to do this, without formatting the whole drive. But make sure the first thing you do is de-fragment the drive to make sure all the existing data is at the start of the physical drive, that then gives you the maximum flexibility over the partition sizes.
